Artwork to take park position 50 years after original went missing - This is Sentinel

Artwork to take park position 50 years after original went missing - This is Sentinel

By Stoke-on-Trent City Council.

A sculpture will be unveiled in Burslem Park next week over 50 years after its predecessor went missing from the same spot.

The newly erected Mayfly sculpture replaces a statue of a water nymph, donated to the park in 1894 by Sir Donald Doulton, which went missing through an act of vandalism in the early 1960s.

The work has seen the city council, Burslem Park Partnership and students from Haywood Engineering College, Moorland Park Primary School, Jackfield Infant School, team up with trainees from PM Training and artists Phil Hardaker and Andrew Edwards.

The unveiling takes place just under a week before Burslem Park will be officially reopened following a two year multimillion pound restoration project.

The sculpture development project and park restoration was supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund.

During the first phase of the park's restoration project, local arts company Artwaves were commissioned to work with local artists and local communities to produce an artistic proposal for a new design. The steel sculpture and has been created at the Atlas Works in the City Centre.

Artist Phil Hardaker also worked with children from Jackfield Infants School, Moorpark Junior School and Haywood Engineering College during early 2012 to produce ceramic jewelling for the Mayfly's wings and tiles to top the original terracotta plinth. The children's tiles will also provide edging for the new path that will enable access to the sculpture.

Councillor Andy Platt, cabinet member for city services and green enterprises, said: "The statue will take pride of place in this wonderful park. To replace the original statue with no photographic reference point has not been an easy task and I'd like to thank everybody involved that has helped to bring this fine piece to life."

Artist Phil Hardaker, added: "It has been a delight to work with Andrew Edwards, the local community and schools on the completion of the mayfly sculpture for Burslem Park.

"The work embraces listening to the community and local children to create a truly unique and stunning new edition to the restored park."

The statue is not a replica of the original as, despite the best efforts of the park's volunteer group the Burslem Park Partnership, it was not possible to find a detailed photograph that would have enabled a replica to be created.


Gloucester Road Tube station art inspired by Big Ben -

Dramatic and colourful artwork inspired by Big Ben has been unveiled at Gloucester Road Tube station in west London.

The installation by artist Sarah Morris has been created for the 18 arches that span the length of the disused platform at the station, and is the latest commission for the Art on the Underground programme.

As Tube trains enter the station passengers see a spectrum of colour as they travel past the arches.

The aim is to recall the countdown to a spectacle or event, and the artwork “also parallels the way in which a train pulls in and out of the station”.

The work derives from a painting of Big Ben that Morris created as one of the 12 posters for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The artist said: “This is the first series of images where I’ve treated London as a subject, as a starting point.

“Stripped bare, Big Ben [2012] is a streamlined image of time, and ironically anti-authoritarian - no-one can control the politics of the future. I wanted to create a spectrum of colour that parallels the movement in and out of Gloucester Road station, an image of arrival and departure.”

Louise Coysh, curator for Art on the Underground, said, “We’re delighted to commission Sarah Morris as the 12th internationally acclaimed artist at our flagship site.

“Her work resonates very strongly not only with London’s architecture and transport infrastructure, but most especially with the energy and excitement in the capital during 2012.”

The Gloucester Road commissions provide invited artists with the opportunity to create ambitious, temporary new work in response to Art on the Underground’s flagship site and its context, which has more than one million visitors each month.
